26 reasons to celebrate!

Being from Illinois, I need a reason to celebrate the swearing in of the new Congress today. Thanks to Nancy Keenan for reminding us that today 26 new PRO-CHOICE Congresswomen & men will be sworn in:

This new Congress includes 21 new fully pro-choice members in the House and five new seats the Senate - a net gain of 26 pro-choice members from the 110th Congress. These new members are from a wide variety of states, including Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, and Virginia.

Twenty-six. Hot damn!

As Nancy goes on to say as well, let's get to work on restoring the reproductive rights for every woman and woman-child in this fine country. Real sex ed, access to birth control, right to choose when and where to birth a baby, and our right to end our babymaking days when we choose. HPV access for those who want it. Access to abortion services, medical or surgical. On and on!!

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
